    HTML stopped working when I changed my domain name? Help?

    Computer Gods! Please help me! I really don't know anything about coding. Huge respect to you all!

    So, I spent 7 hours yesterday learning how to use HTMl code to remove the side bar and header from certain pages in my blogger blog.

    I'm essentially creating a website on blogger, with 5 static pages, then the blog. The static pages have different headers than the blog pages.

    I bought a domain name from godaddy a few months ago, so it was ready to connect. No problem there, the new domain name is working.

    BUT when I made the switch, the header and side bar went back into the static pages that I spent forever learning how to code away. I went back into the HTML code and altered the urls. It didn't make a difference.

    The website is

    The following pages should not have the header and side bar:

    How can I fix this?! Thank you for any info!

    Where did you edit the pages? I hope you say "on my computer."
    If not and you edited the code on the server do you still have access to that?
    It looks like the edited pages were not move, but the original pages were loaded.
    Go look in the old site and save those pages to your desktop.

    P.S. Most website offer to move your stuff for you if you are having trouble doig it yourself, but save them to your desktop first.

    Blogger and GoDaddy are connected in a way that it takes like two steps to move the domain yourself. The HTML code was edited on the blogger site, never on my computer, and the code isn't separated by page.

    You are just not following good migration practices. The right way to do it is:

    A- download the code to your own computer.
    B- do all the necessary editing on the copy on your computer
    C- test the pages on your computer
    D- upload to the new location
    E- test on the new site
    f- backup to offline media.

    You should never directly edit the files on the server... all maintenance and development work should be done on your own local computer and tested before you put it into production.
    100% standards compliant code is 100% correct 100% of the time.
